NEW: Ergon’s elongated Crimson Sweet hybrid watermelon variety ES 75126 F1

In July we visited our watermelon trial fields in Italy and Cyprus. We were very pleased to see the progress of our new variety ES 75126 F1 against competitive varieties.

The variety perfoms very well and because of its earliness it has a wide adaptability both in early cultivations as in the summer cultivation.

Because of its earliness the variety is convenient for earlier planting without losing fruit weight in mature stage.

The results were very encouraging with regard to:
- fruit shape
- uniformity
- fruit weight (15 – 17.5 kg)
- brix
- keepability in the field
- internal fruit structure

The variety has a slightly darker green coloured rind than the common Crimson Sweet varieties, which makes the variety looks very appealing.

ES 75126 F1 has a strong vegetation and rootsystem and bigger leaves than the competitive varieties (see picture below).
